Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check (CRJMC)(formerly Police Information Check (PIC))
A collection of offence information, including convictions, non-convictions and other relevant police contact information available from a local police agency's records management system and other systems/records where authorized.
This check is intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with agencies who require a criminal record check along with local police involvement. The agency has determined that a search of pardoned sex offenders database is NOT required (i.e., border crossing or visa) therefore this check is NOT intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with vulnerable persons.
The Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check will include the following, released as either a criminal record or police contact information:
- Criminal convictions (summary and indictable) from CPIC and/or local databases.
- Summary Convictions for five years, when identified.
- Findings of Guilt under the Youth Criminal Justice Act within the applicable disclosure period
- Outstanding entries, such as charges and warrants, current judicial orders, Peace Bonds, Probation and Prohibition Orders. As per CPIC policy, information obtained from the Investigative Databank must be confirmed and authorized for release by the contributing agency.
- Absolute and Conditional Discharges within the applicable disclosure period.
- Charged and processed by other means such as Diversion will be released as police contact only.
- Dispositions including, but not limited to, Withdrawn and Dismissed.
